Product Description

Two side-long pieces from the early '90s released here for the first time ever. Part One, May 1994 - Lee Ranaldo lends the voice and words of his 'Bloomington, Indiana' piece to Jim O'Rourke and Christoph Heemann for a text-based collaborative composition that turns into an electro-acoustic exploration making use of Ranaldo's voice exclusively. A critic's remark made after a first version of this piece was premiered at a sound art festival in the Netherlands that same year: 'Rock and roll burnout syndrome goes whistling down a dark and lonely street,' still appears as peculiar as the piece itself. Part Two - 'Autumn' goes back further to the time when Heemann and O'Rourke produced several pieces for their Plastic Palace People project (of which more releases are in preparation now)."

"Well then - a painting or a piece of statuary is a thing outside the human life, your life. It is an emotional experience only. It has actually nothing to do with you yourself. You could live very well the rest of your life if you never saw it again, although you would remember it every now and then the ache would come again at the memory of it. But imagine a form of life, a culture, a way of life, a way you yourself could live, so beautiful that it made you ache just like the painting, but a thousand-fold more so...
